Pinned toot

Hello, I am a straight white cis male. I am trying to be a better ally to the lgbt+ and BIPOC communities as well as for climate.

I am a Christian agnostic, trying to find any meaning in the tradition that I have lived in for my entire life (not sure how much I can find, but still looking).

Think Trumpers storming the capital could be prosecuted under Trumps Statues and Monuments act. The elites capitalists, big tech, congress, love to legislate us for authoritarianism.

So, I would like to take today to remind people on my timeline that in the US:

-Trials by jury are almost nonexistent: 99% of prosecuted cases end in an intimidation-based plea deal.
-We use the cash bail system, which means whether the innocent get locked up for months or years pretrial depends largely on economic class. It also tends to be a lot higher for minorities, especially black people. TLDR people get locked up here -even if they win-.
-Prosecutors have a lot more control over jury selection than you think, even when it comes to that. The concept of bias means you could deliberately have 12 white republicans stacked against you if the right screening questions get asked.

And that's not even getting into mandatory minimum sentences, 3-strikes laws, or, you know, how we literally have concentration camps where undocumented immigrants get sterilized. Or how no one's really tried to stop that in the past 4 years, and the incoming administration probably won't try to either.

You are living under fascism, and you've -been- living under fascism. Possibly your whole life.
